Sideswipe · 1:39am Nov 12th, 2020


Hey, guys! I am back with another Transformer review! This time, I will be talking about one of my favorite Autobots of all time: Sideswipe. Now, Sideswipe is a really fun and cool character as far as his Bayverse incarnation is concerned. I honestly can care less about the other Sideswipes, but this one definitely takes the cake! I was actually introduced to the character from Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen as I watched the film at the time of release in the movie theater with my dad, and ever since then, I immediately liked him a lot. He is courageous, daring, and skillful as an Autobot warrior. Plus, from what I’ve read from the comics, he was initially portrayed as a cocky and arrogant bot who was under Ironhide’s tutelage.

After having his disastrous fight with Demolisher, he realized the grave mistakes he made due to his pride. After watching him in Transformers: Dark of the Moon, it appeared that he matured over the years and applied the lessons he learned from Ironhide. After Ironhide was murdered by Sentinel Prime, Optimus Prime appointed him as his new second-in-command. I love his transformation sound effect, his Corvette Stingray concept car mode, his blades, and his cool one-liners. Now, here is his ROTF toy bio and capabilities list as follows:

Sideswipe was built to fight. He is sleek, fast, and single-minded in battle, focusing on his enemy with absolute attention. His blades are a shining blur as he leaps through the air, twisting to avoid enemy fire. Converting from vehicle to robot at blinding speed, he uses every trick in the book to get close to his opponent and put his powerful swords to work.

Strength: 8
Intelligence: 7
Speed: 8
Endurance: 6
Rank: 5 (after Ironhide’s death, his rank increased to 9)
Courage: 7
Fireblast: 3
Skill: 9

Very impressive characteristics he has. Plus, it actually fits him very well which is one of the reasons why I love this Sideswipe. Don’t get me started with RID Sideswipe who was just a complete egotistical idiot in that series and never learned anything. Ughhh, I hate that version. Anyway, Sideswipe is awesome, and he will always be alive in my heart (even though we never saw him again in the last two films). I believe he is still out there despite the fact the series is over, and I refuse to believe he was killed off-screen by Lockdown. No matter... as long as he has his fans, he will never die. Thus, I give him 5/5 stars ⭐️!!

Peace!
